Tuxedo Park Real Estate & Homes
Tuxedo Park is known for two things: picturesque landscaping and historic mansions. This is a highly sophisticated neighborhood that is aptly named. Some of the finest real estate in all of Buckhead can be found in the Tuxedo Park neighborhood.
This very prestigious neighborhood is located between Roswell Road, Powers Ferry and Northside Drive. It is just a tad bit north of the center of Buckhead.
The neighborhood has been around since the 1800’s. Back then it was mainly used as farm land. As time went on some of Atlanta’s most affluent started building large estates on the land that would serve as their summer homes.
Back then people loved the area because it was far removed from the hustle and bustle that was taking place in the city of Atlanta. However, in recent years developers have come in and purchased many of the large estates. They have subdivided them and turned them into more housing options. The architectural styles found throughout the area include Mediterranean, French, Colonial Revival and English.
The population in the area is 72,060. Of those there are 34,318 households, 26,378 married couples and 7,974 children. The median age is 34, the median home sales price is $436,253 and the median household income $100,166. While the median home sale price in the area is $436,253, it is not uncommon for residents to pay anywhere between $1 million and $20 million for their homes. That’s how prestigious Tuxedo Park is.
Since Tuxedo Park is technically a part of Buckhead they are serviced by the Buckhead public schools system. Some of the schools in the area include:
- Garden Hills Elementary School
- High Point Elementary School
- Atlanta Speech School
- Atlanta Girls School
- Ridgeview Charter Middle School
- Holy Innocents Episcopal School
- Lovett School

Overall, this ears is one of the most prestigious with plenty of history found throughout.
